TLS 1.1 Should I use QWORD or DWORD and what ciphers should be added ?

Windows 2008 R2 server, IIS 7.0.  I turned off the SSL 3.0 and turned on the TLS 1.1 in the registiry using the Microsoft instructions.  They scanned the server again and they are saying it's still  vunerable.

I used QWORD in the registry settings instead of DWORD since it's a 64 bit operating system.  Is QWORD Correct?

I was not sure if there were specific ciphers I needed to turn off also that may still be causing the problem?

they should be DWORD not QWORD

indeed it is DWORD (32-bit) Value for client and server. And collectively do reference to Microsoft security advisory for the mitigation of the recent SSLv3 Poodle vulnerability. Note there are previous vulnerability such as BEAST which is along the line for disabling SSL v3 too. check out the browser setting and it will be good to push down as GPO to all managed machines and manually configure it for the standalone machine

I gave up using manual registry entries.
Try this free tool instead:
